Abacá Boutique Resort in Mactan Island, Philippines

July 8, 2011 by

Located on a secluded, serene, seafront area sits tropical island hideaway Abacá Boutique Resort, a child friendly resort.

This resort is home to nine rooms, comprised of six suites and three villas. The stylish, modern suites highlight the work of famous local designers (including Brad Pitt’s bed-maker) beside ethnic touches from the Philippines’ archipelago, warm, dark woods and calming stone.

The Oceanfront Spa Villa (Villa 7, or Tawhay) possesses a large balcony for private sunbathing and dining overlooking the spa and seafront.

Abacá is a perfect resort for eight year old and under, who stay at the resort for free. The hotel supplies guests with baby cots and extra day beds for older children. Resort staff can also provide toys and DVD’s while a kid’s playroom, which is located next to the hotel nanny’s headquarters, can be enjoyed. And good news for parents who wish to have some alone time: babysitting can be arranged.

The resort’s name comes from a native plant fiber, so it’s only fitting that Abacá “goes green.” Its construction was completed with locally sourced materials while regular beach clean-ups and projects that support the island community are continually done.

Some facilities the boutique resort offers are: library with books and DVD’s, spa, gym, kayaks, gardens, free WiFi throughout. In rooms: flatscreen TV, DVD player, iPod docks with preloaded iPods and iPads on request, fridge and minibar.

The resort is home to a 30m black-tiled infinity pool while grass-thatched cabanas with day-beds offer shade. The pool also has a shallow end for children to enjoy.

Oceanfront Abacá restaurant offers guests Californian-meets-Mediterranean fine dining with a laid-back fancy air and candlelit, open-air simplicity. Australian chef Wade Watson’s roasted dishes are a treat, straight from the wood-burning oven.
